I have always tried to give away cool stuff to the membership of RDP. Honestly I don't think you can find any organization that has given away more beer, and booze in the Tri-State area than RDP does at any given event. This being our Tenth Anniversary though, I figured we should kick things up a notch. So for a summer kick off I think a ride for two people in the RDP Helicopter at Desert Storm is a good way to start the season!
Going up in a Helicopter during Desert Storm for a boater is about as bad ass experience as you can get. It's one thing to see the event from the ground, but it is an entirely different perspective to go up in the air, and see the lake and all the boats running around, and the entire scope and size of the event from the air!
So I was talking to Fred Young (Helicopter Pilot), and he says that we have a break in the schedule Friday afternoon. He tells me we can pick a couple people up from the point on the Nautical, and we have more than enough time to buzz them around the lake and make sure they get to see a little bit of everything and deliver a pretty first class experience for a couple of RDP members.
-------------- Contest -------------
All you have to do is tell us a story, and the best story wins two seats in the Helicopter! (Pictures help, but not mandatory) We'd like to hear your best "RDP" story! It can be about anything RDP.. You were partying on the lake and.. You were working on your boat, and needed this and another member... You were out at a dinner wearing an RDP shirt and.. Hell I know a guy that was wearing an RDP hat in a bar not that long ago, and a girl approached him because she saw the hat! (Yes there's a guy actually getting laid now because he was wearing an RDP hat).
Don't have an RDP Story? (Hard to believe I know.. but there is some newer members on here, and we want to give them a chance too) NO PROBLEM! Tell me your best Desert Storm Story, or your best boating story!
Today is the 19th. On Saturday the 29th, I'm going to be having beers in my garage with Tom, and some other people and we are going to decide which is the best story in this thread.
The winner not only gets to go up in the Helicopter, but also gets to take a "Plus 1!" (Best Story wins 2 seats) While I'd assume that would be their significant other, if for some reason they don't have a chick, they can take a friend. However If there is some chick you are interested in, than I'd say a VIP ride in a Helo during DS would probably "seal the deal."
In typical RDP fashion, we like to do something cool and then go overboard with it. This is one of TWO CONTESTS!! Pink Taco will be launching a second contest for a second set of seats in the Helicopter to be given away via our FB Group Page!
